Capell & Howard hosts Employment and Labor Law Seminar

On January 5, 2012, Capell & Howard and the Montgomery Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management sponsored a full-day Labor & Employment Law Seminar in Montgomery, Alabama. Constance S. Barker, a Commissioner of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and former shareholder of the firm, was our special guest speaker. Attendees had a wonderful opportunity to get her perspective on future enforcement priorities for the Commission and to ask her questions. Seven attorneys from the firm’s Labor & Employment Law Practice Group presented materials on current hot topics in the field. Bruce J. Downey provided an overview of developments in traditional labor law and under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Henry C. Barnett, Jr. spoke about the right way to handle reductions in force. Tommy Eden presented his tips for compliance with the Beason-Hammon Alabama Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act. Christopher Weller shared his advice on non-compete and non-disclosure agreements. Barbara J. Wells discussed investigating workplace misconduct and avoiding retaliation claims. Terrie S. Biggs addressed compliance with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act. Patricia R. Osuch delivered helpful information relating to compliance with the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008. More than 150 people registered for the seminar.
